You should see the stares he gets as the built vehicles coming the other way let us through...it's hilarious!

But honestly, the damn thing is capable as hell. Diesel, 4x4, has 4lo, has lockers, and the air ride suspension can give it something like 6-8" of clearance over it's lowest setting.
sweet, ive read about those, jeep should take notes and add some features to the wranglers from those

Took a quick weekend trip up to Durango with the fam (well, 2 of my 3 kids). Decided to take a detour to Silverton yesterday before coming home. We only had a couple hours so we only went about 5-10 miles outside of town on some pretty mellow trails...but still had a good time. That town is so cool! Can't wait for the trip planned for over Labor Day weekend! Here are a couple pics from the weekend. Again...nothing hardcore, but still fun!

Well its less than 2 weeks untill the trip to Colorado, sure am looking forward to it. Just a reminder we are having the pre trip meet & greet this Sat Aug 24, I hope to see everyone there. We should have some more feed back from NMbruce as he has made a few trips up to Colorado this summer and did some recon on our planned trails. : ) Thanks Bruce. On a different note anyone interested in going to Moab in Oct. 17th thru 21st, get in contact with me for details.

Just throwing this out there in advanced, since we have 10 jeeps going it might be a good idea if people who have some spare stock parts lying around, they bring them in case we need to field fix something to get someone to town.

Idea's:
front Ball joints
Axle Shafts
Drive Shafts
Other?
